Why Oliver Batista Meier no longer has any prospects at Bayern



Stuck in a difficult phase: Oliver Batista Meier.

Praised by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and played twelve minutes in the Bundesliga under the direction of Hansi Flick, Oliver Batista Meier no longer plays a role with the Bayern professionals and is allowed to leave the German record champions. How did that happen?

Free kick from 20 yards, half-left position. A quick start, a nice dangling. Gate. Strokes of genius like the one last Tuesday from Oliver Batista Meier have been seen more frequently in recent years.

However, his joy about it was limited. He didn’t change his face and clapped his fellow players soberly as if it were the most normal thing in the world. Perhaps it felt that way for him too, because he scored that goal against SC Eltersdorf in the Regionalliga Bayern. A stage that does not necessarily meet his requirements, considering that not so long ago he was on the verge of moving up to the professional squad of FC Bayern and even grandees like Karl-Heinz Rummenigge trusted him to make the leap to the top.

However, Batista Meier is now a long way from being a professional player in Munich. While a large number of campus talents, with Arijon Ibrahimovic even a 15-year-old, can be part of the professional training and new coach Julian Nagelsmann lets numerous players of the second team come into play in the preparation games, the offensive player no longer has any prospects German record champions.

FC Bayern: Nagelsmann plans without Batista Meier

The motto is clear: Batista Meier, who played twelve minutes in the Bundesliga home game against Fortuna Düsseldorf under the direction of Hansi Flick in May 2020, is allowed to leave the club.

The reason for this is by no means its footballing quality. Inside Bayern there are few who deny Batista Meier’s talent. However, it takes more than talent to assert yourself on the way to becoming a seasoned Bundesliga player. For example, the German-Brazilian who came to Munich for half a million euros from the youth department of 1. FC Kaiserslautern in 2016 is said to have a certain level of comfort; he is said to be lacking in training. It was not without reason that the club decided again last year to upgrade to the wing positions instead of giving Batista Meier the chance.

Douglas Costa came back to Munich, while Batista Meier switched to SC Heerenveen on loan. At the Dutch first division team, despite good performance, he only got a total of 691 minutes of action at the beginning and was not recommended for a permanent commitment or for a future with his home club.

Batista Meier canceled the move to Jahn Regensburg

His contract in Munich runs until June 30, 2023, according to information from SPOX and Goal, Batista Meier insists on an immediate change. There is no shortage of potential buyers. FC St. Gallen recently showed interest in him, but a transfer to Switzerland failed, as did an engagement with Jahn Regensburg. The second division was maximally surprised when Batista Meier broke off the talks on the home stretch and quickly changed his management.

After only a few months at SportsTotal, the right-footed person will again be advised by ICM Stellar Sports – the same agency that transferred him to Heerenveen last year. His intention is clear: He doesn’t want to have to take free kicks in the Regional League Bayern for too long.
